You don't turn this around in a couple shifts. Its going to take a little time, but I know the guys will come back. Because I can see it. -- Jacques Lemaire

He didn't destroy the team. John MacLean's inept coaching abilities did.
The rot set in when Lemaire wanted to give White the C for a game after the Olympics. The team was never the same after that until he was traded.

Why boo? Things didn't work out and it was time to move on for both parties. How many Devils players have left the organization on so-so terms only to be welcomed back with open arms by Lou? Jamie will certainly be in that group when he is done playing.
So many great Devils moments included Jamie. Booing him would be so unfortunate, but unfortunately par for the course here.
I think he deserves a healthy ovation.

A cheer if he's announced, no acknowledgement otherwise. Hate him for the way he left? By waving his no trade clause after being asked multiple times to wave it? Just because people on the board call him a cancer it doesn't make it true. No one know what went on behind closed doors so no one can judge.
If anything I think people would have wanted him to waive the NTC SOONER since his not waiving it kept us in cap purgatory, and plus there were a 'lot' of cheers when he was a scratch the night he was traded. There was definite anger towards him. Whether we as a crowd will be more magnanimous now since we've had a year of good hockey since then or all the more angry with him since it's more obvious he needed to go by the day I can't guess.
The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03
